Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer speech to trial lawyers convention, 7/14/2008


Published July 14, 2008


Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer's speech to the annual trial lawyers' convention in Philadelphia on July 14, 2008, in which Schweitzer boasted (to the cheers of the trial lawyers) of his misuse of official powers to interfere with the voting and vote-counting process to tip the 2006 Montana election for a U.S. Senate seat to his favored candidate, Jon Tester (listen at 10:30 to 12:00 about the plan Schweitzer carried out to use threats of false arrest to force Republican poll watchers to abandon their posts, and at 12:45 to 14:30 about Schweitzer's directive to the clerk of Silver Bow County to delay the release of vote counts for many hours so as to give Tester a tactical advantage in resisting a recount)
